Compare Texas electric prices

About 85 percent of Texas enjoys a deregulated energy market, giving residents and businesses the power to choose their electricity company from many different options. Texas has nearly two dozen energy providers catering to a population of more than 29 million.

The Public Utilities Commission of Texas runs a website called Power to Choose, which shows plans and rates across the state. However, many Texans find the official Power to Choose website confusing, and it does not allow users to sign up for the plans that it lists. This is where Choose Energy differs.

The average price for residential electricity in Texas as of September 2021 is 12.21 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh) and the average price for commercial electricity is 8.16 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh). Choose Energy offers fixed-rate plans starting as low as 7.7 (¢/kWh). If you’re looking to lower your electricity bill, you’ve come to the right place.

Our site is an unaffiliated, independent marketplace where you can compare current electricity rates, providers, and plans in your area. Shop for affordable electricity rates in Texas with the free Choose Energy marketplace. Enter your ZIP code to get started comparing and saving today.
